Appearance is muddy brown with a 2 finger super dense, tight-bubbled European style head with unreal retention. Aroma is pine forest, caramel candy with tons of resin lurking beneath, reminds me more of a barleywine than an IPA. Taste is intense pine needles, resin, tannins, (licorice?), lightly roasted bread, then tons more resin. Body is medium, creamy, avg carbonation, ridiculously unbalanced bitter finish. Overall, I love IPAs but this is a little too much. Any beer claiming a theoretical 1000IBU is certain to be unbalanced, but if anyone can pull it off, it’s Mikkeller!

Camons (9630) - Hasselager, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle @ Fairbar. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of faint malt, caramel, lots of hops, pine, citruss, catspiss. Taste is malt, citrussly hops, pine, resin, catspiss. Full body, soft carbonation, lasting bitter finish. Extreme hoppy beer, but rather good balanced and drinks quite well. 170410

Tap. Nose is a big citrus, though not crazy fragrant. Murky orange pour. Big blast of citrus, with a decent toffee malt body. Bitterness is a little flat, not vibrant like say some WCIPAs. Much more balanced than you could give a beer with this name credit for. Hides the alcohol pretty well. Won’t be tasting the intricacies of too many beers after this one though. One and done.

It is as advertised a palate bruising hoppy beast. It was a worth while novelty try but there was no tasting any other brews after this. It’s worth a try if your found a 10 spot in your fall jacket and want to try something that is extreme, but certainly not a beer that I think you need to try more than once or twice.

Vignale (3147) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
Inte vad man förväntar sig kanske med tanke på namnet. Mycket maltsötma, lite sirapsaktig i konsistensen också, men såklart främst massor av humle. Främst aromhumle men med ganska snäll beska. Känns lite som att dricka outspädd saft, sött och koncentrerat och något kvalmig utan att fördenskull vara särskilt svårdrucken.

On tap at Archive. Poured a hazy peach amber with a moderate beige head. Looked and felt solid in the glass. Big hoppy aromas and punchy hop flavour was expected . Could not have too many in one sitting.

Bottle @ Dan’s house. Dark red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Weird bready and a strange plethora of multiple hops and some bitterness. Weird huge grassy, organic, piney, resiny hoppy dominated flavor. The hops and bitterness really linger. Need to rerate since this is a little old.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Bottle, 37,5 cl: Hazy surprisingly dark beer - amber with a lasting, creamy and nearly orange-colored head. Aroma is very sweet caramel-malty and fruity hoppy with strong notes of peach and grapefruit. Flavor is very sweet malt with tons of fruity hops - citrus, tangerine, peach and grapefruit are very prominent. There are notes of raisin, prunes and dates as well and it doesn’t feel as bitter in the mouth as I had expected. Actually it has a a very soft mouthfeel and a creamy texture. Finish is lingering dry and bitter. Interesting brew, but somehow, it seems a little out of balance - too sweet and plummy for my palate. I prefer my (I)IPAs more dry and less complicated to drink.

Wrapped bottle. Was very nervous about whether this would be old or in bad shape as can happen with expensive imports. But super lovely melon mango aroma. Unfiltered I guess, with little Kuiper belt of sediment. Very dark and cloudy with very persistent head and instant thick lacing. Flavor a little licorice and tea but with plenty of bitterness and some balancing sweetness. Bitter finish is most notable characteristic. Smells great, tastes good but not special.
